    I'm using the video help - and I'm running the Samsung SW Upgrade in Administrator Mode.

    I'm at the part where it says to connect the PC and phone via USB - the vid said to try that repeatedly.

    OK - it's been two hours of trying repeatedly.

    I'm attempting this with a Vista / Inspiron 1420 pc.

    Any suggestions would be most appreciated - I can probably track down anything from XP to Win7, and am open to any advice on this.

    Many thanks in advance for any advice whatsoever!!

    PS - Of course this means that the phone is in the Download screen where it warns to not turn off target - I would presume I'll get a brick if I try to restart the phone or do a battery pull from here.

    Is that true?

    PPS - I also have some confidence in the USB port and cable because I was able to backup the SD card contents using same.

    ~~~~~~~

    Found the rar file for a Win USB driver installer in the FAQ, trying that. No soap.

    Now trying Samsung PC Studio. Nope.

    Well - good news it didn't malfunction after a battery pull - but still no Radioactive Moment.

    Any suggestions WAY appreciated, in advance!

    Ealry,

    Sorry I'm a little confused. Are you Rooting, or just trying to add the Radioactive ROM?

    I had issues on my personal computer where I was never able to get the connection to happen. As soon as I tried it on my wifes computer it connected immediately. Both systems are Vista so I assume I have something installed that is conflicting with the driver. So if you have access to a second computer you might want to give that a try.

    And yes as long as the download has not started you can uplug the usb and remove the battery without any harm. But you must let the download / update process complete once it actually connects and the transfer starts.

    Mike

    PS

    I could connect to the moment and transfer stuff to the sd card but it would not connect in the download mode.

    First - thanks for pitching in gang, most appreciated.

    I'm rooting for the first time with a Moment with the intention of ending up with Radioactive.

    The instruction I chose for this process was the post in this thread:

    http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-moment/128094-so-once-ive-watched-root-tutorial-videos.html#post1210275

    I previewed, downloaded, and am at 6:37 into the first video referenced by the first link.

    Per my device listing at left, I think I'm maybe kinda clear on the rooting process in general, but without a straight Linux or adb type method to work with on the Moment I need all of the help that I can get.

    It's been a few years since I've used Windows daily, so have no fear of talking to me as a Windows noob. Last revision I really was comfortable in was XP.

    And I'm 100% noob on rooting the Moment.

    The laptop I'm using for this borrowed, but I'm trusted for any installations on it.

    If it's a hardware issue, I can procure another machine and go forward to Win7 or back to XP, not a problem.

    Again, many thanks, and kindly feed back if I've answered clearly or not.

    PS - Sounds like Mike is saying that I'd better get another laptop and this is pathological or idiosyncratic to specific configurations.
